CEEDUniverse minimisefeature?

Could you add a minimise option for CEEDUniverse please

This was my gripe too at first. However, from what I've seen, CEEDUniverse writes to the Linux framebuffer directly rather than running inside the desktop environment.

What this means is that it's not just a full-screen window inside your desktop environment; the game creates its own environment totally separately from your desktop environment, and while it's running, it takes over control of the graphics, mouse and keyboard; and would have to give up those resources in order to return you to your desktop environment.

Not to say it can't be done, but it wouldn't be as simple as just adding a minimise button (if they were to add it, you might expect something like a 'save and exit' option -- disguised as a minimise button -- but which actually quits then reloads the game behind the scenes).

Oh okay thanks!
